4) A gaze of love
The vocal prayers of the Rosary only provide the rhythm of the prayer. With my thoughts, I can and should go out from the rhythm to encounter the Mystery which is being contemplated. This is more clear in German, where the mystery is announced not only at the beginning of each decade but before each Hail Mary. It’s a time to look your Beloved in the eyes and let Him look back, with eyes full of love.
